Democratic Congressman Introduces Gun Control Scheme to Allow Cities to Trample All Over Second Amendment Rights

Published

on

Democratic Congressman William Lacy Clay is introducing a gun control bill that aims to reduce gun violence in urban centers like his hometown of St. Louis.

Despite obstacles in the Republican-led Senate and White House, Clay believes his bill, the Local Public Health and Safety Protection Act, can make it out of Congress.

This bill, which is co-sponsored by Congresswoman Robin Kelly, requires states receiving Department of Justice public safety grants to pass their own gun control laws. Clay said that Missouri is among 43 states with pre-emption laws that prohibit cities from having gun laws stricter than their statewide laws.

Clay believes that this measure is among many changes needed to address the so-called “epidemic” of gun violence in urban centers.

“In St. Louis and across the nation, we are faced with an ugly, obscene inescapable truth: Gun violence is a public health emergency,” the Congressman declared.

Clay added, “I’m tired of the violence, I’m tired of the excuses, and I’m tired of our state legislature being either unable or too frightened to do something about gun violence because they’re being held hostage by the NRA (National Rifle Association).”

According to the Congressman, this bill would allow cities to pass the gun control crowd’s favorite gun control measures such as universal background checks, ammo restrictions, assault weapons bans, and bans on large-capacity magazines.

Thankfully, the partisan makeup of D.C. is such that radical gun control schemes like Clay’s bill will likely not make it to President Trump’s desk.

The real battles anyways are fighting against the so-called “red flag” gun confiscation legislation, which happens to have bipartisan support.

Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”

Tanden is a controversial Democrat.

Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.

Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,

Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.

However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
